The Verve - Sonnet



My friend and me
Looking through her red box of memories
Faded I'm sure
But love seems to stick in her veins you know

Yes, there's love if you want it
Don't sound like no sonnet, my lord
Yes, there's love if you want it
Don't sound like no sonnet, my lord
My lord

Why can't you see
That nature has its way of warning me
Eyes open wide
Looking at the heavens with a tear in my eye

Yes, there's love if you want it
Don't sound like no sonnet, my lord
Yes, there's love if you want it
Don't sound like no sonnet, my lord
My lord

Sinking fast within a boat without a hull
My lord
Dreaming about the day when I can see you there
My side
By my side

Here we go again and my head is gone, my lord
I stop to say hello
'Cause I think you should know by now
By now
By now
By now
By now
By now
Oh, by now
Oh, by now
Oh, by now
Oh, by now

U2 And Johnny Cash - The Wanderer



I went out walking through the streets paved with gold
Lifted some stones
Saw the skin and bones
Of a city without a soul
I went out walking under an atomic sky
Where the ground won't turn
And the rain it burns
Like the tears when I said goodbye

Yeah I went with nothing
Nothing but the thought of you
I went wandering
I went drifting through the capitals of tin
Where men can't walk
Or freely talk
And sons turn their fathers in

I stopped outside a church house
Where the citizens like to sit
They say they want the kingdom
But they don't want God in it

Yeah I went with nothing
Nothing but the thought of you
I went wandering
I went drifting through the capitals of tin
Where men can't walk
Or freely talk
And sons turn their fathers in

I went out with nothing
Nothing but the thought of you
I went wandering
I went out walking
Down that winding road
Where no one's trusting no one
And conscience...a too heavy load
I went out riding, down that ol'eight lane
I passed by a thousand signs
Looking for my own name

Yeah I went with nothing
Nothing but the thought of you
I went wandering
I went drifting through the capitals of tin
Where men can't walk
Or freely talk
And sons turn their fathers in

I went with nothing
But the thought you'd be there, too
Looking for you
I went out there in search of experience
To taste and to touch and to feel's as much
As a man can before he repents
I went out searching, looking for one good man
A spirit who would not bend or break
Who could sit at his father's right hand
I went out walking with a bible and a gun
The word of God lay heavy on my heart
I was sure I was the one
Now Jesus, don't you wait up
Jesus, I'll be home soon
Yea I went out for the papers
Told her I'd be back by noon
Yeah I left with nothing
But the thought you'd be there too
Looking for you...
Yeah I left with nothing
Nothing but the thought of you...
I went wandering

David Bowie - Life On Mars?





It's a god-awful small affair
To the girl with the mousy hair
But her mummy is yelling, "No!"
And her daddy has told her to go
But her friend is nowhere to be seen
Now she walks through her sunken dream
To the seat with the clearest view
And she's hooked to the silver screen

But the film is a saddening bore
For she's lived it ten times or more
She could spit in the eyes of fools
As they ask her to focus on

[Chorus:]
Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man!
Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

It's on America's tortured brow
That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
Now the workers have struck for fame
'Cause Lennon's on sale again
See the mice in their million hordes
From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads
Rule Britannia is out of bounds
To my mother, my dog, and clowns

But the film is a saddening bore
'Cause I wrote it ten times or more
It's about to be writ again
As I ask you to focus on

[Chorus]

Depeche Mode Enjoy The Silence




Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world
Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Can't you understand
Oh my little girl

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And forgettable

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

The Clash - Rock the Casbah



Now the king told the boogie men
You have to let that raga drop
The oil down the desert way
Has been shakin' to the top
The sheik he drove his Cadillac
He went a' cruisnin' down the ville
The muezzin was a' standing
On the radiator grille

[Chorus]
The shareef don't like it
Rockin' the Casbah
Rock the Casbah
The shareef don't like it
Rockin' the Casbah
Rock the Casbah

By order of the prophet
We ban that boogie sound
Degenerate the faithful
With that crazy Casbah sound
But the Bedouin they brought out
The electric camel drum
The local guitar picker
Got his guitar picking thumb
As soon as the shareef
Had cleared the square
They began to wail

[Chorus]

Now over at the temple
Oh! They really pack 'em in
The in crowd say it's cool
To dig this chanting thing
But as the wind changed direction
The temple band took five
The crowd caught a wiff
Of that crazy Casbah jive

[Chorus]

The king called up his jet fighters
He said you better earn your pay
Drop your bombs between the minarets
Down the Casbah way

As soon as the shareef was
Chauffeured outta there
The jet pilots tuned to
The cockpit radio blare

As soon as the shareef was
Outta their hair
The jet pilots wailed

[Chorus]

He thinks it's not kosher
Fundamentally he can't take it.
You know he really hates it.


"Combat Rock" (1982)

Don't Go Breaking My Heart - Elton John & Kiki Dee




Don't go breaking my heart
I couldn't if I tried
Honey if I get restless
Baby you're not that kind

Don't go breaking my heart
You take the weight off me
Honey when you knock on my door
I gave you my key

Nobody knows it
When I was down
I was your clown
Nobody knows it
Right from the start
I gave you my heart
I gave you my heart

So don't go breaking my heart
I won't go breaking your heart
Don't go breaking my heart

And nobody told us
`Cause nobody showed us
And now it's up to us babe
I think we can make it

So don't misunderstand me
You put the light in my life
You put the sparks to the flame
I've got your heart in my sights

Benabar - Le Diner



J'veux pas y'aller à ce dîner,
J'ai pas l'moral,
J'suis fatigué,
Ils nous en voudront pas,
Allez on n'y va pas.
En plus faut que je fasse un régime
ma chemise me boudine,
J'ai l'air d'une chipolata,
Je peux pas sortir comme ça.
Ça n'a rien à voir
J'les aime bien tes amis,
Mais je veux pas les voir
Parce que j'ai pas envie.

On s'en fout, on n'y va pas,
On n'a qu'à se cacher sous les draps,
On commandera des pizzas,
Toi la télé et moi,
On appelle, on s'excuse,
On improvise, on trouve quelque chose,
On n'a qu'à dire à tes amis
Qu'on les aime pas et puis tant pis.

J'suis pas d'humeur tout me déprime
Et il se trouve que par hasard,
Y'a un super bon film
A la télé ce soir.
Un chef-d’œuvre du 7ème art
Que je voudrais revoir,
Un drame très engagé
Sur la police de Saint-Tropez.
C'est une satire sociale
Dont le personnage central
Est joué par De Funès,
En plus y'a des extraterrestres.

On s'en fout, on n'y va pas,
On n'a qu'à se cacher sous les draps,
On commandera des pizzas,
Toi la télé et moi,
On appelle, on s'excuse,
On improvise, on trouve quelque chose,
On n'a qu'à dire à tes amis
Qu'on les aime pas et puis tant pis.
On s'en fout, on n'y va pas,
On n'a qu'à se cacher sous les draps,
On commandera des pizzas,
Toi la télé et moi.

J'ai des frissons je me sens faible,
Je crois que je suis souffrant,
Ce serait pas raisonnable
De sortir maintenant.
Je préfère pas prendre de risque,
C'est peut-être contagieux,
Il vaut mieux que je reste
Ça m'ennuie mais c'est mieux.
Tu me traites d'égoïste,
Comment oses-tu dire ça ?
Moi qui suis malheureux et triste
Et j'ai même pas de home-cinéma.

On s'en fout, on n'y va pas,
On n'a qu'à se cacher sous les draps,
On commandera des pizzas,
Toi la télé et moi,
On appelle, on s'excuse,
On improvise, on trouve quelque chose,
On n'a qu'à dire à tes amis
Qu'on les aime pas et puis tant pis.
On s'en fout, on n'y va pas,
On n'a qu'à se cacher sous les draps,
On commandera des pizzas,
Toi la télé et moi.

The Rolling Stones - Sympathy For The Devil



Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man's soul and faith
And I was 'round when Jesus Christ
Had his moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game
I stuck around St. Petersburg
When I saw it was a time for a change
Killed the czar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain
I rode a tank
Held a general's rank
When the blitzkrieg raged
And the bodies stank
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
Ah, what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah
I watched with glee
While your kings and queens
Fought for ten decades
For the gods they made
I shouted out,
"Who killed the Kennedys?"
When after all
It was you and me
Let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached Bombay
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what's confusing you
Is just the nature of my game
Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners saints
As heads is tails
Just call me Lucifer
Cause I'm in need of some restraint
So if you meet me
Have some courtesy
Have some sympathy, and some taste
Use all your well-learned politesse
Or I'll lay your soul to waste, um yeah
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, um yeah
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, um mean it, get down
Woo, who
Oh yeah, get on down
Oh yeah
Oh yeah!
Tell me baby, what's my name
Tell me honey, can ya guess my name
Tell me baby, what's my name
I tell you one time, you're to blame
Ooo, who
Ooo, who
Ooo, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Oh, yeah
What's me name
Tell me, baby, what's my name
Tell me, sweetie, what's my name
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Oh, yeah

Fever Ray 'If I Had A Heart'



This will never end 'cause I want more
More, give me more, give me more

This will never end 'cause I want more
More, give me more, give me more

If I had a heart I could love you
If I had a voice I would sing
After the night when I wake up
I'll see what tomorrow brings

If I had a voice I would sing

Dangling feet from window frame
Will They ever ever reach the floor?
More, give me more, give me more

Crushed and filled with all I found
Underneath and inside
Just to come around
More, give me more, give me more

If I had a voice I would sing

Sign O' The Times - Prince



Oh yeah!
In France, a skinny man died of a big disease with a little name
By chance his girlfriend came across a needle and soon she did the same
At home there are seventeen-year-old boys and their idea of fun
Is being in a gang called 'The Disciples'
High on crack and totin' a machine gun

Time
Times

Hurricane Annie ripped the ceiling of a church and killed everyone inside
You turn on the telly and every other story is tellin' you somebody died
A sister killed her baby 'cause she couldn't afford to feed it
And yet we're sending people to the moon
In September, my cousin tried reefer for the very first time
Now he's doing horse - it's June, unh

Times
Times

It's silly, no?
When a rocket ship explodes and everybody still wants to fly
But some say a man ain't happy unless a man truly dies
Oh why?

Time
Time

Baby make a speech, Star Wars fly
Neighbors just shine it on
But if a night falls and a bomb falls
Will anybody see the dawn?

Time, mm
Times

Is it silly, no?
When a rocket blows and, and everybody still wants to fly
Some say man ain't happy truly until a man truly dies
Oh why, oh why?
Sign o' the times, unh

Time
Time

Sign o' the times mess with your mind
Hurry before it's too late
Let's fall in love, get married, have a baby
We'll call him Nate
If it's a boy

Time
Times

Queen & David Bowie - Under Pressure



Pressure pushing down on me
Pressing down on you, no man ask for
Under pressure that burns a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming, "Let me out!"
Tomorrow gets me higher
Pressure on people - people on streets

Chippin' around, kick my brains 'round the floor
These are the days - it never rains but it pours
People on streets - people on streets

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming, "Let me out!"
Tomorrow gets me higher, higher, higher...
Pressure on people - people on streets

Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work
Keep coming up with love but it's so slashed and torn
Why, why, why?

Love

Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking
Can't we give ourselves one more chance?
Why can't we give love that one more chance?
Why can't we give love, give love, give love, give love, give love, give love, give love, give love?..

'Cause love's such an old-fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves
Under pressure
Under pressure
Pressure

Supertramp Goodbye Stranger



It was an early morning yesterday
I was up before the dawn
And I really have enjoyed my stay
But I must be moving on

Like a king without a castle
Like a queen without a throne
I'm an early morning lover
And I must be moving on

Now I believe in what you say
Is the undisputed truth
But I have to have things my own way
To keep me in my youth

Like a ship without an anchor
Like a slave without a chain
Just the thought of those sweet ladies
Sends a shiver through my veins

And I will go on shining
Shining like brand new
I'll never look behind me
My troubles will be few

Goodbye stranger it's been nice
Hope you find your paradise
Tried to see your point of view
Hope your dreams will all come true

Goodbye Mary, goodbye Jane
Will we ever meet again
Feel no sorrow, feel no shame
Come tomorrow, feel no pain

Now some they do and some they don't
And some you just can't tell
And some they will and some they won't
With some it's just as well

You can laugh at my behavior
That'll never bother me
Say the devil is my savior
But I don't pay no heed

And I will go on shining
Shining like brand new
I'll never look behind me
My troubles will be few

Goodbye stranger it's been nice
Hope you find your paradise
Tried to see your point of view
Hope your dreams will all come true

Goodbye Mary, goodbye Jane
Will we ever meet again?
Feel no sorrow, feel no shame
Come tomorrow, feel no pain

Goodbye Mary, goodbye Jane
Will we ever meet again?
Feel no sorrow, feel no shame
Come tomorrow, feel no pain

Goodbye Mary, goodbye Jane
Will we ever meet again?

Now some they do and some they don't
And some you just can't tell like
And some they will and some they won't
With some it's just as well

You can laugh at my behavior
That'll never bother me
Say the devil is my savior
But I don't pay no heed

And I will go on shining
Shining like brand new
I'll never look behind me
My troubles will be few

Goodbye stranger it's been nice
Hope you find your paradise
Tried to see your point of view
Hope your dreams will all come true

Goodbye Mary, goodbye Jane
Will we ever meet again?
Feel no sorrow, feel no shame
Come tomorrow, feel no pain

Goodbye Mary, goodbye Jane
Will we ever meet again?
Feel no sorrow, feel no shame
Come tomorrow, feel no pain

Goodbye Mary, goodbye Jane
Will we ever meet again?
Feel no sorrow, feel no shame
Come tomorrow, feel no pain

Goodbye Mary, goodbye Jane
Will we ever meet again?

Arctic Monkeys - Do I Wanna Know?



Have you got color in your cheeks?
Do you ever get that feelin' that you can't shift the tide
That sticks around like summat's in your teeth
Ah, there's some aces up your sleeve
Have you no idea that you're in deep
I dreamt about you nearly every night this week
How many secrets can you keep?
'Cause there's this tune I found that makes me think of you somehow
When I play it on repeat
Until I fall asleep
Spilling drinks on my settee

(Do I wanna know?)
If this feeling flows both ways
(Sad to see you go)
Was sorta hoping that you'd stay
(Baby we both know)
That the nights were mainly made for saying
Things that you can't say tomorrow day

Crawlin' back to you

Ever thought of calling when you've had a few?
'Cause I always do
Maybe I'm too busy being yours to fall for somebody new
Now I've thought it through

Crawling back to you

So have you got the guts?
Been wondering if your heart's still open and
If so I wanna know what time it shuts
Simmer down and pucker up
I'm sorry to interrupt it's just I'm constantly
On the cusp of trying to kiss you
I don't know if you feel the same as I do
But we could be together, if you wanted to

(Do I wanna know?)
If this feeling flows both ways
(Sad to see you go)
Was sorta hoping that you'd stay
(Baby we both know)
That the nights were mainly made for saying
Things that you can't say tomorrow day

Crawling back to you

Ever thought of calling when you've had a few? (calling when you've had a few)
'Cause I always do ('cause I always do)
Maybe I'm too busy being yours to fall for somebody new
Now I've thought it through

Crawling back to you, (do I wanna know?)
If this feeling flows both ways
(Sad to see you go)
Was sorta hoping that you'd stay
(Baby we both know)
That the nights were mainly made for saying
Things that you can't say tomorrow day

(Do I wanna know?)
Too busy being yours to fall
(Sad to see you go)
Ever thought of calling darling?
(Do I wanna know)
Do you want me crawling back to you?

Talk Talk - Living In Another World



Better parted
I see people crying
Truth gets harder
There's no sense in lying

Help me
Find my way from this maze
I can't help myself

When I see tenderness before you left
(Forget)
That even breaking up was never meant
(Forget)
But only angels look before they tread
(Forget)

(Living in another world to you)
(Living in another world to you)
(Living in another world to you)

Better parted
I see people hiding
Speech gets harder
There's no sense in writing

Help me
Find the way from this maze
I can't help myself

When I see tenderness before you left
(Forget)
That even breaking up was never meant
(Forget)
But only angels look before they tread
(Forget)

(Living in another world to you)
(Living in another world to you)
(Living in another world to you)

Help me
Find a way from this maze
I'm living in another world to you
And I can't help myself

Did I see tenderness where you saw hell?
(Forget)
Did I see angels in the hand I held?
(Forget)
God only knows what kind of tale you'd tell
(Forget)

(Living in another world to you)
(Living in another world to you)
(Living in another world to you)

Cats on trees Sirens call



Whatever way, the same
Nothing according to plan
If I could just see clearly, into you
The same face every day, the sirens calling away
This mean so much more

The floating boat is carrying me
and I can live my story differently
the greedy sirens are chewing all around me
While I sing oh
On the falling shoals, I wonder why me?
On my way to the falls, I hope you see
We are heading to the wall even if you are sorry,
While I sing oh

In my sleep, nothing same
nothing according to plan
If I could be someone, without you
The same smile everyday
The sirens calling away
This mean so much more

The floating boat is carrying me
and I can live my story differently
the greedy sirens are chewing all around me
While I sing oh

In my sleep, nothing same
nothing according to plan
If I could be someone, without you
The same smile everyday
The sirens calling away
This mean so much more

The floating boat is carrying me
and I can live my story differently
the greedy sirens are chewing all around me
While I sing oh
On the falling shoals, I wonder why me?
On my way to the falls, I hope you see
We are heading to the wall even if you are sorry,
While I sing oh

DAVID BOWIE - Space Oddity





Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills
and put your helmet on

Ground Control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown,
engines on
Check ignition
and may God's love be with you

[spoken]
Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Liftoff

This is Ground Control
to Major Tom
You've really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it's time to leave the capsule
if you dare

This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I'm stepping through the door
And I'm floating
in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do

Though I'm past
one hundred thousand miles
I'm feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much
she knows

Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit's dead,
there's something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you....

Here am I floating
round my tin can
Far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do.

The Dø - Sparks



It blows the night
It's just the start
I'm not surprised
They shoot us all

We like to keep
Some places wild
Like battlefields
Where no one fights

The road that we share
The air that we breathe
The treasures that we hide
Here and there

The ashes of love
The signals of hate
The plays and the crumbling skies

And if someone comes and shows up at the door
No one will be there to answer anymore

We have it on tape now

A building decade
We lifted ...
Overhead

What everyone knows
But never admits
We play by the rules
This time
We're holding on
We're standing strong
We wrote the line
We won't divide
We like to keep
Some places wild

Chagrin d'amour Chacun fait c'qui lui plaît



Now, here's a story that must be told

'Bout a man who rocks since he's four years old

He danced up and down from night 'til dawn

He said: Check that beat goes on and on

He jives on reggae, he jives on punk

He said: Give me music and not just funk

He jumps to the left, he jumps to the right

He jumps up and down all through the night

Cinq heures du mat' j'ai des frissons

Je claque des dents et je monte le son

Seul sur le lit dans mes draps bleus froissés

C'est l'insomnie Sommeil cassé

Je perds la tête

Et mes cigarettes sont toutes fumées dans le cendrier

C'est plein d'Kleenex et d'bouteilles vides

J'suis tout seul, tout seul, tout seul

Pendant qu'Boulogne se désespère

J'ai d'quoi m'remplir un dernier verre

Clac fait le verre en tombant sur le lino

J'm'coupe la main en ramassant les morceaux

Je stérilise, les murs qui dansent

L'alcool ça grise et ça commence

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah ... font les moutons, sur le parquet

Et à c'moment là, qu'est-ce que vous avez fait ?

J'crois qu'j'ai r'mis la radio

Chacun fait, fait, fait

C'qui lui plaît, plaît, plaît !

L'précipice est au bout

L'précipice on s'en fout !

Chacun fait, fait, fait

C'qui lui plaît, plaît, plaît.

Toutes les étoiles qui brillent

Qu'est-ce qu'elles ont à m'dire, les étoiles ?

Six heures du mat'

Faut qu'j'trouve à boire

Liqueur forte ou café noir

J'brûle un feu rouge

Police patrouille

Je serre les fesses

Y a rien qui presse

"Quatre, cinq francs ma rose !"

Crie le p'tit chose

Dans le matin rose

J’gare mon ondine

Sous ses comptines

Ah ! Qu'est-ce t'as là, qu'est-ce t'as ?

Tout près d'une poste

Y a un p'tit bar

Je pousse la porte

Et je viens m'asseoir

Trois, quatre patibulaires

Tapent le carton dans les waters

Toute seule au bar

Dans un coin noir

Une blonde platine

Sirote sa fine

Elle m'dit : "Champagne ?"

Je l'accompagne

Elle m'dit : "Cinquante ?"

J'lui dis : "Ca m'tente"

Et vous êtes rentré comment ?

- Dans ma voiture

Ah ! Et y avait toujours l'même air à la radio

Chacun fait, fait, fait

C'qui lui plaît, plaît, plaît !

Que d'pression dans les bars !

Personne te pousse à boire !

Chacun fait, fait, fait

C'qui lui plaît, plaît, plaît !

Les gens ont d'ces manies !

- La décalcomanie…

Sept heures du mat', l'hôtel

Je paie, j'abrège

Je fouille mes poches

Je sais c'est moche

Son sourire rouge,

Son corps qui bouge

Elle fait glisser son cœur croisé

Sur sa peau bronzée

T'as les bas nylon

Qui filent sur l'édredon

Ses ongles m'accrochent

"Tu viens Chéri ?"

Le lit qui craque

Et les volets claquent

Seuls dans le lit

Dans ses draps bleus froissés

Sur sa peau glisse mes doigts glacés

Elle prend la pose

J'pense à autre chose,

Ses yeux miroirs

Renvoient mon r'gard

Les anges pressés

Dans ce bleu glacé

Me disent : "C'est l'heure !"

J'leur dis : "Quelle heure ?"

Et vous, vous souvenez vraiment pas de c'qui s'est passé ?

-Non, vraiment pas.

Chacun fait, fait, fait

C'qui lui plaît, plaît, plaît !

Sous mes pieds, y a la terre !

Sous tes pied, y a l'enfer !

Chacun fait, fait, fait

C'qui lui plaît, plaît, plaît !

Mon Dieu, j'peux même pas jouir !

- Tant pis pour toi, il faut dormir !

Alors j'me sauve dans le matin gris

C'est plein d'cageots et pas d'taxi

Les chats qui s'tapent leurs p'tits ronrons

Des éminences, des p'tits bateaux

Porte d'la Chapelle

Je m'sens pas belle

Mes bigoudis

Sont plus en plis

Dans mon studio, j'aspirateur

La vidéo m'fait un peu peur

Madame pipi

A des ennuis

Monsieur papa

S'fait du tracas

Dans les logis

Des mal lotis

Bébé vomit sa bouillie

Huit heures du mat' j'ai des frissons

Je claque des dents et je monte le son

Seule sur le lit

Dans mes draps bleus froissés

C'est l'insomnie

Sommeil cassé

Je perds la tête

Mes cigarettes sont toutes fumées

Dans le cendrier

C'est plein d'Kleenex et d'bouteilles vides

J'suis toute seule, toute seule, toute seule

Pendant qu'Boulogne se désespère

J'ai d'quoi m'remplir un dernier verre

Clac fait le verre en tombant sur le lino

J'm'coupe la main en ramassant les morceaux

I don't need money, I don't need a car...

Doobie Brothers What A fool Believes




He came from somewhere back in her long ago
The sentimental fool don't see
Tryin' hard to recreate
What had yet to be created once in her life
She musters a smile
For his nostalgic tale
Never coming near what he wanted to say
Only to realize
It never really was

She had a place in his life
He never made her think twice
As he rises to her apology
Anybody else would surely know
He's watching her go

But what a fool believes he sees
No wise man has the power to reason away
What seems to be
Is always better than nothing
And nothing at all keeps sending him...

Somewhere back in her long ago
Where he can still believe there's a place in her life
Someday, somewhere, she will return

She had a place in his life
He never made her think twice
As he rises to her apology
Anybody else would surely know
He's watching her go

But what a fool believes he sees
No wise man has the power to reason away
What seems to be
Is always better than nothing
There's nothing at all
But what a fool believes he sees...
